A Sweet Hello

Hello, my crafty friends!

I have another card for you today. This card is made for a very special aunt. She and I pretty much grew up together as she is only 2 years older than I. She is in the hospital and I wanted to send her a cheery card.

Of course, I decided to use some challenges to bring it together.

The first challenge is for Peachy Keen Stamps Let's Face It Friday challenge. For this challenge you must use a PK face and use patterned paper.

The second challenge is for Ruthie's (September Ninth) Tacky Tuesday Challenge on Facebook. This month's challenge is to use a cool treat and include the word "Sweet" in the sentiment.

The third challenge that I am entering this in is at My Craft Spot. This week's challenge is "Inking It Up."

Here is the card I created:

And here is a close up of my PK face.

I wasn't sure if my cherry was going to be big enough for a face but with the assortment packages of Peachy Keen Stamps you are sure to find one that fits just about any cut.

Here are the details:
My card is 4.25 X 5.5 inches
Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge for all my cuts. The backgound shape is sized at 3.74 x 5.36 and 3.48 x 4.98
My sundae and all layers is sized at 3.5
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-560 Dolly Dumplins Face Assortment
Scrappy Moms Stamps ~ "Sweet Somethings"
Patterned Paper ~ My Mind's Eye Summer Song and Where the Heart Is
Ranger Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder ~ D'Vine Swirls
Stickles ~ Orange Peel, Cotton, Candy, Lime Green, Xmas Red, and Star Dust
Other supplies ~ ATG, foam tape, and hot glue

That's it for today. I hope your day is wonderful!

Happy Crafting!!

What a wonderful card! I love the contrast of the stripes and polka-dots - and the glitter is such a fabulous touch, too.
I do hope your aunt recovers quickly, Saundra.
